1) Get in the habit of seeing your dentist as often as they recommend, so complex treatments could be avoided. Most problems can be detected early, helping you steer clear of traumatic treatment.
2) There is increasing evidence that poor dental and gum health puts you at greater risk of heart disease, strokes and lung disease so there are many reasons in addition to your dental health to take care of your teeth. We offer a hygienist service to help keep on top of your oral hygiene.
3) Make sure you look after your teeth properly. You should spend at least two minutes every morning and night on your brushing and you should also be flossing daily.
4) Watching what you eat can help reduce your risk of tooth decay, too. Some of the bacteria in our mouths love the sugars and starches found in foods. They turn these into acid, which causes decay. Limiting your intake of sugary and starchy foods helps to prevent tooth decay and the need for dental treatment. Avoiding sweet or starchy snacks between meals (including fruits high in natural sugars) and brushing your teeth after eating will also limit the time you have sugary solutions in your mouth and on your teeth.
